Day’s end

A Rengay by Mary Kendall & Bill Waters

stillness —
violet fades
to black

the scratch of a match
as I strike it

a flicker
of memory starts
then stops

turn of the tide . . .
how hard it is
to let go

a limb of driftwood
pulled back to sea

fair nights or foul
the lighthouse beam
shining
